Hey everybody!
Thought we might share good or not so good pictures of our current or past listening stations/rigs. Might be fun to see what type of hardware everybody has and how it looks like in its natural habitat.

This is my current setup:
DAC: Topping D10
Amp: Massdrop THX AAA 789 and PMillet Nutube Hybrid

Cayin MA-80 integrated amp and an SMLS M8A (thanks to the review here). Not pictured are Spendor S3/5R2 speakers, a pair of B&W 10" subs, Clearaudio Concept turntable, Graham Slee Revelation M phono stage, and a PC.

The big rig is back home in Vegas.

The Eizo monitor: nice. I have one, too. The colour depth and even display temp make it really easy on the eyes.

Here is a former state of my vintage office set-up (now it's bi-amped with tubes on top :cool: ) :

He's made of plastic, but the original was made of Plasticine (a non-setting modelling clay)...

Other name is "claymation" I believe. Love that style of art especially when I was a kid. It can be done really well like "The Fantastic Mr. Fox", although sometimes horribly like: worst and best claymation

I wonder if the bricks contribute anything for the acoustics other than being your makeshift (?) rack stand. :cool: This is not the first time I've seen something like this though...

Sure, on top of this low-cost modular antiseismic design being my crown jewel as DIY king, unpainted cinderblocks also have interesting acoustic properties (from Everest et al, Master Handbook of Acoustics - is this audio science, or what ? ;) ) :

Very minimalist, I see. Though It would be nice not to have to carry extra "dongles" and an external amp.
True. This was a rather recent change as my previous setup was the SE846 directly out of my iPhone (via FiiO iRC-MMCX lightning cable). Thus far this “upgrade” has proved more subjective than objective, and if I weren’t so lazy, it would’ve been returned by now.

One portable amp I'd like Amir to measure is the Periodic Audio Nickel. He's spoken with them before so it may be in the works.

50% off right now apparently.

Lately, it's been the Washburn 12-string mostly, followed by the Fiio M3K/Sennheiser HD 599 then [in the background] a/d/s 400's hooked up to a Yahama 5.1 receiver, set up as 2-channel + sub configuration. Often I'll use my Fiio M3K as source for the speaker system. Not shown, the Onkyo cassette dec, Sony DVD/SACD/CD player. There's also Schiit Magni 3 headphone amp, Sennheiser 579s, a couple of Sony Blu-Ray players that also play SACDs, other stuff too.
